Also: PilotVision Augmented Reality, Becker Avionics, Unleaded Avgas Replacement, Missing Man Stole Plane

At the typical ‘Joe’s Flight School’ seen at many American airports, the average flight training aircraft often doesn’t look so much different than the one your father might have flown… or your grandfather, for that matter. The Airplane Factory has an alternative to yesterday’s battered trainers with the all-new Sling NGT (Next-Generation Trainer), a sporty, modern, FADEC-equipped, training aircraft. First; the Sling NGT looks like what a modern trainer should look like… with a big, high-visibility sliding bubble canopy, a modern Rotax engine, and a brand new G3X glass panel. The Twin Tigers Aerobatic Team is the 2019 recipient of the Bill Barber Award for Showmanship. One of the most prestigious awards in the airshow industry, the list of Barber hon

Also: AMA Celebrates Apollo 11, Bahamas UAV Delivery, DroneShield, ANN Oshkosh Schedule

Moment, a company known for making add-on lenses for smartphones, is expanding its product line to include an anamorphic lens for DJI drones. The company launched a Kickstarter campaign for the lens, that will clip to the existing camera installed on DJI Mavic 2 Pro or Mavic 2 Zoom aircraft, allowing the camera to capture a wider field of view and has the capability to add cinematic lens flares to videos captured by the drones. Moment says it was able to fly a Mavic 2 Pro drone in heavy winds with the lens attached with no effect on the aircraft's performance. Skymagic designed and delivered a drone light show at this year's Zurich Festival, performing over the weekend in front of over a million spectators. The synchronized swarm of 150 drones was launched high into the night sky - directly from a floating pont

A strategic partnership between Volans-i and Hogfish Ventures company Fli Drone to provide on-demand drone delivery services in The Bahamas recently resulted in the successful completion of the first long-range UAV delivery in The Bahamas on June 18.
